Pfefferbett Hostel by Playze

Pfefferbett Hostel is a minimalist house located in Berlin, Germany, designed by Playze. The house 6 on Pfefferberg, an old brewery from the 19th century, was originally used as the energy plant for the site. Today the building is used as a hostel. The big vertical space was kept as uncovered as possible, highlighting the historic steel structure. All of the programs, namely the reception, cafe, bar, internet stations and the information desk have been packed into one minimal element and clad with sheet metal. (2)

Pfefferbett Hostel is a minimalist house located in Berlin, Germany, designed by Playze. The house 6 on Pfefferberg, an old brewery from the 19th century, was originally used as the energy plant for the site. Today the building is used as a hostel. The big vertical space was kept as uncovered as possible, highlighting the historic steel structure. All of the programs, namely the reception, cafe, bar, internet stations and the information desk have been packed into one minimal element and clad with sheet metal.

The formal layout of this element strictly follows the functionality of each position, integrating the entire infrastructure. The concept of the project was to create a new space that respects the historic elements, while adding the layer of a multifunctional hostel lobby. The aim was to realize a location that talks both about the long history of the site and the contemporary dynamics of Berlin.
